Welcome to the Gibbon Bridge Hotel

Gibbon Bridge was established in 1982 when my mother and I decided to diversify from farming. We started with six bedrooms and a bar. The business continued to grow, and with it the hotel, and we now have an award winning country hotel with 30 bedrooms and 23 acres of award winning gardens. It is still my home and my passion, and I enjoy nothing more than sharing it with others. I want you to feel at home here too and for you to be able to relax and enjoy our gardens, the fabulous scenery and our locally sourced food. My team and I will do our up-most to ensure your stay with us is one not to be forgotten!  Take a look at our latest Newsletter for all our latest news and offers.  We are also pleased to confirm that we now have free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
I look forward to welcoming you to Gibbon Bridge soon.
